AbstractThe SMART (Smart Modularized Advanced Reusable Telemeter) is an advanced telemetry system. The SMART system enhances the quality of a weapon system by providing an adaptable built-in telemetry capability for the weapon. Existing weapon telemetry systems are centralized, separate components which require many fault-prone interconnections. This system reduces the number of interconnections and provides higher performance than current systems. The modular system uses a high data-rate serial data link that connects remote measurement modules located throughout the unit-under-test. A smart processor is used to analyze and compress data from the various modules prior to transmission, making more effective use of the telemetry bandwidth. The smart processing unit also adapts the measurement units for changing test conditions on-the-fly. The system will allow more complete testing of the weapon system and solve a broader range of problems. The goal of the SMART project is to utilize the most advanced technology to overcome the current design methodologies that have perpetuated shortcomings in present systems. This project is being conceptualized to encompass a broader range of telemetry applications beyond the present weapon systems at Sandia.
